Here are some testimonials:

"Tractor Grease staging is a great company for outdoor concerts. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly to work with. All our bands just loved their sound guy!"

Lynda Baker
Cultural and Community Events Coordinator, City of Coquitlam

"Tractor grease does just as their name would suggest, make your event machine run smooth and easy. I organize the annual 4/20 rally in the core of downtown vancouver and with a crowd pushing 30k it really helps to have a straight and focussed crew to deal with all of the last minute requirements… These rallies have plenty! Jeff and his crew are where i need them, when i need them, bringing a highly adaptable and pro job to these events. But it's not just that, their professionalism and positive attitudes are contagious which is way important when things get stressful. These guys are the real deal and they make their jobs look easy."

Adam Bowen
Vancouver 420 Event Organizer
